Another abstraction of roses.
More going back through the photographic archives!
This morning I came across some images from 4/2011 when I was using a friend’s Nikon D70. I think this may be a Pope John Paul II white rose in my front garden. I took a number of images with an exposure long enough to let me blur the image, but short enough not to make a mess. There are about 10 that I did, some which are rather nice, I think. I like this one because of its softness, but also as I was looking at them, I was also thinking they could make for some rather interesting paintings.
I tried to catch the window on the gallery where I stood one night in Salt Lake City. The automatic exposure of the XA4 was a long one . . . when I first glimpsed this, I wondered what fire I had photographed.
Failure on my part to track and shoot, but the abstraction of this picture is, to my eyes, quite pleasant.
